I certainly respect your take on the licensing issues. I am trying to understand how this all plays out by trying things...

In this case, it is making little hobby movies (lego animations). If I want to set music to it, then I would like to go and grab music from a repository. If I were trying to make a great film, I would think harder, but since I am not (or rather, my children are not), I would not want to bother artists or have the possibility of being turned down...

In this case, I would think that for many artists the "non-commercial" restriction would be enough to restrict use rather than also saying it could not be used as a part of other non-commercial projects, especially if attribution were required.

but this is just the musings of a non-artist. Again, I respect those that are doing the real thing-- making music available to others to enjoy.

i don't think anybody can legally restrict you from making a private animation work using any music you like (even commercial). the issue is whether or not you publish it (i.e. make it public). & as i said before, i'm quite certain the artists involved will be happy to grant you this permission if you ask them directly. regardless, that would be, i think, the polite thing to do if you plan to create a derivative work.
